We are happy to present our first release of the year. This is Transparente by Otra Carpeta, the experimental solo project by Mexican artists Carlos Edelmiro. This improviser and composer currently living in Barcelona, presents this work in which he tries to find a balance between his improvisational facette and the more compositional one.
Transparente is a short album that contain small compositions some of them already presented on the compilation [at050] Desde La Atalaia. Thatâs the case of Civao, the second piece of Transparente. The album also comes with a couple of collaborations with sound artists Pia Sommer and Gabriel MillÃ¡n. Both collaborations, and this is interesting, are based on voice, something we find quite refreshing. As said on the text by Miguel Ãlvarez-Fernandez about the compilation mentioned earlier, voice is somehow missed in many of the works presented at Audiotalaia. Also, and in concordance, if we take a tour on experimental musics being made in Spain right now, voice is more or less forgotten in this days. I cannot find an explanation for that and I donât know if its relevant or not, at least is something to take care of or wander why it happens.
In the meantime we will listen to this Transparente, a precise and compact combination of compositions splattered with some sense of humour that we much appreciate this days.
